Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic Cares for Veterans and Locals Alike with Back Pain and Stress

Stress of life and stress of military life are worrying. Chiropractic care extends relieving care to both military and non-military folks alike. Current studies centered on the benefits of chiropractic for military veterans uncovered benefits of chiropractic care to which Eugene chiropractic care patients can connect: improvement in pain, strength, and dealing with pain. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is the Eugene chiropractic pain and stress relief center!

STRESS AND PAIN

Veterans struggle with stress and pain. The VA System is working on addressing veterans’ needs. Medicine is at the front in the VA care system while many veterans are venturing outside that system for other care. A national survey of veterans discovered that 52% employed complementary and integrated health options to address their issues with pain and stress reduction/relaxation leading the list: 44% massage, 37% chiropractic, 34% mindfulness, 24% other meditation, and 25% yoga. 84% said they are interested in trying at least one of these options: massage, chiropractic, acupressure, reflexology, progressive relaxation, acupressure. They were far more likely to use these beyond the VA System. (1) Veterans are like you! They seek Eugene chiropractic care outside the regular system at times, too!

HELPING VETERANS REGAIN THEIR STRENGTH

Veterans with back pain like other back pain sufferers lose their strength and quality of life. Chiropractic care can oftentimes help. Veterans particularly suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder which complicates their pain management care. Chiropractic care within the VA system takes into consideration these overlying issues. Chiropractors in the VA System will want to carefully diagnose and manage PTSD veterans to ensure they are receiving all the care they need. (2) Your Eugene chiropractor thinks each of our Eugene back pain patients’ other issues in the same way to optimize positive clinical outcomes.  

IMPROVING STRENGTH IN LOW BACK PAIN SUFFERING VETERANS

One positive clinical outcome all back pain sufferers want is to perform activities of daily living as they want and need. Back pain is notorious for interfering with daily activities. For veterans, lifting, endurance and balance are crucial daily activities. Back pain suffering veterans were allocated to chiropractic care or a wait list for four weeks. The chiropractic patients increased their pulling strength by 5.08 kgs while the wait list group’s pull strength decreased by 7.43 kgs. Trunk muscle endurance, disability, pain intensity and fear avoidance behavior all got better with chiropractic care of active military personnel with low back pain. (3) Plus, after back surgery, some veterans will still experience pain and want some help.  90.3% of VA chiropractors reported seeing at least 1 post-back surgery fusion patient in the last 30 days. (4) Chiropractic care for post-surgical continued pain is showing itself to be beneficial.  Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers such pain reducing, strength increasing care for Eugene back pain sufferers, too!
